What kind of scales do Progressive Metal/Mathcore/Metalcore bands use? I'm looking to write a song in a combination of these genres but I don't know what scale to use. Examples of bands that are in these genre's are PTH and The Number Twelve Looks Like You.

What More Is There To Say..
usually diminished, half-step and whole-step scales to make it sound weird...

A lot of music isn't really going anywhere. There are tons of fans in here going 'oh my god, <> is evolving so much and <> is so shit lol!' but tons of it is just recycled material and tired ideas.
Along with diminished, they use a ton of modular scales.
